Lucknow, July 29 (IANS) The bodies of an agricultural university employee and his wife were found Thursday in the campus in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur district, police said.
The bodies of Durga Prasad, 55, and his wife Sharda, 50, were found Thursday outside the employees’ quarters situated in the premises of the Chandra Shekhar Azad Agriculture University.

“We are yet to ascertain the exact reason behind the killings. Teams have been constituted to nab those involved behind the double murder,” he added.
